    Xigmatek announced availability of its Nebula cubical mini-ITX chassis. Unlike other monolithic cubical cases with bluntly rounded edges, the Nebula features a few interesting design bits. You'll find the case seated on a chrome bottom-tier, and an equally suspended top-tier. The black panels feature a piano-black finish. One of its edges is sliced into with the case's power LED glowing in amber/orange. Front panel connectivity includes a pair of USB 3.0 ports (standard header) and HDA front-panel jacks.

    Under the hood, the Xigmatek Nebula features room for a normal-sized mini-ITX motherboard, with room for up to 200 mm long dual-slot graphics cards (an ASUS DirectCU Mini will make it). There's also room for CPU coolers that are up to 80 mm tall. Its storage area has room for two 3.5/2.5-inch drives, with no optical drive slots on offer. There's room for a standard ATX/EPS power supply. The case passively draws in air from bottom vents, a 120 mm Xigmatek XOF PWM-controlled fan pushes hot air out from the rear.

    Awesome looks. It looks almost like an alien artefact. But is still very classy at the same time. And doesn't look like anything from Apple. How cool is that!

    I never thought I'd see the day where Xigmatek produced a good looking case. I'll be damned.

    It's a very nice looking case but I feel like they mucked up the layout a bit and ruined the CPU air cooling potential. They did this because of the positioning of the HDD cage, it runs front to back alongside the PSU but wouldn't fit with even a 150mm deep PSU if positioned side to sise...they could have done something funky like have HDD mounts flat on the chassis sides like the one Lian Li ITX case. Then a 120mm fan would above the motherboard I/O panel and then the PSU above that, leaving space for 120mm fan tower coolers.
